Stampin Up Sweets for the Sweet Lollipop

Yesterday's card was simple...this one is not and I love this card! I got the idea from an online search of the stamp set and I actually used a CTMH stamp a well.

The paper is Stampin Up's Sweet Shop that I got off the clearance rack sometime ago. It works perfect for the Sweets For The Sweet stamp set.

The banner is the one from Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection and just went too well with this card so I had to mix the two companies *okie wonders if she is going to stampers hell for doing so*.

I really like the starkness of the white paper embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder behind the great colors of the paper and lollipops.

For the "wrapper" I used Black Stazon ink stamped on some clear transparency and then cut it out by hand. To attach them I used some Terrifically Tacky Tape and just added a little strip under the bow putting it on the transparency and then a little strip under the transparency and attached to the card. This made it where you can't see the tape and also gave it a little lift making it look more like a wrapper.

The inside of the card reads "Hope Your Birthday's as sweet as you" and is another stamp included in the CTMH bundle. I'm not sure I can part with these cards, yes I did make 6 of course, but I guess it wouldn't make sense to just keep them!


  1. Lovely job as always!!

  4. Wow! Awesome! As a CTMH consultant, I certainly think you can mix companies... :-)
